A Very Bad Egg

Humpty . . . Hic

Humpty Dumpty, we’ve all heard of him,
Sat on a wall to tipple his gin,
Fell off it backward and cracked his head.
Altogether a very bad egg!

    Did the graphic inspire the rhyme, or the other way ’round?

      The rhyme came first – while washing up. I then hunted through a CD of clip-art. On this occasion I only combined a few elements. The one I did for St George took considerable alteration and then combination.

    Funny reinterpretation of the rhyme! It inspired me to look up the origins of Humpty Dumpty, and I ran across this site, listing several. Not the most scholarly version, but fun anyway.
